Podium - Barack Obama


United States President Barack Obama outlines his new strategy for Afghanistan in a prime-time address from the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, New York, December 1, 2009. Mr. Obama announces a deployment of up to 35,000 additional troops, discusses the financial costs of the war, and outlines the reasons for a continued American military presence in Afghanistan. His long-awaited speech also broaches the American objectives needed to eventually withdraw forces – especially the training of Afghan security personnel.
